    Scary to say the least. Hope he is OK and it's nothing serious.

    He's been running and playing no problem ever since so I wasnt stressing over it anymore, but I will call the vet.
    I was told regarding hip dysplasia and other issues, X rays are fairly useless at his age.
    Not sure the specific reason why, but my friend who is a vet confirmed the same.
    Guess what they see at this age isn't fully developed yet, and they have to wait to see how things go.
    I will have the vet look at him on Friday. Thats his next appointment.
    I have noticed since I got him that he tends to run .... how do I say this .... diagonally?
    Do any of your bullys do that?
    If you're facing him straight-on, and he runs to you, I can see his back end is slightly to the side of his front end.
    Very slight. Might be a bully running thing?

    Loki runs diagonally as well when we are playing almost like his back is faster then his front. Any other bullies that we have met do the same.

    LOL yes Fergus runs like that too.. Bullies are the funniest dogs ever I know seriously he has to be the most ungraceful dog ever. He constantly runs with this nose on the ground and ends up doing a flip onto his back.

    Glad Baxter is ok. Keep us updated on what the vet says.

    Bullies tend to have that gate to them because their hind legs are longer than the front . Yes bullies don't develop until 24 months and that is when they are suppose to be x-rayed for hips and knees. My vet has been in practice 35 years and when I was looking to import my male he examined 2 sets of X-rays for me. Both were taken at 10 weeks of age specifically for me. 2 different breeders 2 different bloodlines he told me that the X-rays of the pup I chose were much better than the other and that there was a good chance that the other pup would develop dysplasia. A specialist can most certainly see in the X-rays of a young pup. The community rescue pup that lives with larip was diagnosed very young and the owners were going to put her down. Thankfully ebn stepped in.

    That should not happen and I would get him x-rayed, as he may have a problem with his hips.
